OxiTester

OxiTester analyses vegetable oils such as olive oil, avocado oil, palm oil, essential oil etc. in real time to determine the Free Fatty Acid (FFA) concentration, the peroxide value and polyphenols for the subsequent assessment of quality with practical , fast and extremely accurate methods. Comparative Laboratory tests in Italy indicate a high correlation between the principles deployed in the OxiTester and traditional test methods.

Ideal For

  • Free Fatty Acid (FFA)/ Acidity
  • Peroxide value/ Peroxides
  • Polyphenols/ anti-oxidant activity

System Components

  • An analyser that uses a sophisticated spectrophotometric technique
  • Pre-vialed disposable reagents
  • Pre-calibrated pipette enabling collection of the correct sample amount
  • PC software (Print manager)
  • Illustrations detailing recommended methods to run the test

Application of the Tests

During crushing- the execution of these tests during crushing enables users to separate vegetable oil batches by specific qualitative parameters so that different qualities of oil can be stored and preserved in optimum conditions

Production- the system can also be used during the production phases to carry out chemical analysis in batches

Advantages

  • Significantly higher reliability, accuracy, reproducibility, ease of use and rapidity than commercial olive oil acidity testers.
  • Only micro-quantities of the sample required for testing
  • No specific calibration, cleaning or maintenance operations required
  • Supplied with pre-programmed tests, selectable from the displayed menus
  • Automatic printing of results
  • Results determined and displayed in real time
  • Can perfrom custom calibrations for a maximum of 3 standard sample with known titration
  • Self calibration and control of measuring cells carried out when the device is switched on
  • Results correlated with international IDF/ FIL reference methods
  • Rapid test results: results in 1 minute for Free Fatty Acids, 5-8 minutes for Peroxide value, 5 minutes for Polyphenols
  • Reagents provided in sealed bags, containing 10 test tubes with 12 month shelf life
  • Connects to a PC for the storage of test results and traceability
  • Serial ports enable the connection to LIMS management systems
